Home Healthcare is a wide range of health care services given in a person’s home upon being discharged from a hospital or health care facility. Our Home Healthcare team can assist with In-Home Therapy, Home Medical Equipment, Home or Vehicle Modification, Personal Care, Companion Services and Nursing care. We also extend our services to various residential settings, schools, workplaces and community settings.
Home Care supports person’s served with complex medical, clinical and psycho-social needs that have difficulty caring for themselves, and helps them live independently in their homes. Home care is also a great alternative to a Long Term Care facility, access to which is usually followed by long wait times. Having a home first approach offers an individual the opportunity to delay a decision about a Long Term Care facility. We are committed to the needs of the person we serve and their family members and strive to develop trusting relationships with everyone we meet.
Who Can Enroll?
- Persons with complex medical, clinical and psycho-social needs that have difficulty caring for themselves
- Persons waiting for a Long Term Care facility
